Thank you for that!
That makes it really easy for me, and the timing is perfect since I am meeting w someone tomorrow to help me with that! Now I don't have to search everywhere!
From the pics it looks like they were putting the clear bra on black portion of the grill. How long did it take to do the install? I washed mine today and was happy to see no dings yet so I want to get the same thing done. It looks awsome on your car from the photo's !
I think I may have to invest in this (V1 version) for mine once it comes in. I have my V1 remote display nicely mounted in dash in my GTI now, but this would be even more slick and it looks like they use the same mirror you bought here.
Did the mirror mount to the existing window lug ok?

They do use a Gentex mirror. Although it's a slightly different model, I'm 99.9% sure it mounts the same as the one I used. It mounted up to the existing mirror base just fine. You just need to use the Audi/VW adapter kit I mentioned above.
Beautiful car, absolutely wonderful...

Don't have the energy to read the whole thread again, but did you happen to vcds code the comfort setting on the turn signals. Had a friend change my setting to 4 but it still only blinks 3 times. How can I fix this?

I have only one thing to add to this. The micro CAN is great for making changes to the cars software but SUCKS for data logging. It cannot do custom block measurment and it's refresh rate is super slow. If you plan on data logging - get the HEX+CAN. The current release of VCDS works fine on our car.

My antenna finally came in the mail today.. 20min later I have a spiffy RNS315 installed.
I only lost one rear trim tab which went flying somewhere... although I think it's still in the car.
not bad for someone who almost always has extra pieces after working on my car...
The antenna had a magnet. But I couldn't find anything metal to stick it to. I just stuffed in down, kind if behind the climatronic. If it rattles I'll go back in a tape or velcro it to something. I didn't notice any noises so far.
Your Car looks first class my man... I will be getting mine very soon.. I do have a question for you..I will be getting the LED tailights for my R. I was wondering what CODE did you use for your R??? I have been seeing in the forum people recoding 18 to 21 or 18 to 20 or 18 to 55 for their GTIs. But i want to know from a 12 US R driver like yourself what code did you use for the setup.. Thanks in Advance my man..
if you get any rattling or think you could be getting better GPS reception, just get some 3M double sided tape and stick it to the underside of the dash. I'd probably do that anyway because I'm an anal SOB.
Do you want LED tails with or without the rear fog lights? If without rear fogs, change byte 18 in 09 - Central Electronics from "20" to "21" If you get the LED tails with rear fogs, change byte 18 to "04"
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Yeah.. it's bugging me a little just knowing that it's loose back there, even though I don't hear anything.
I have scary thoughts about it getting wedged against some other wires/plugs and causing a short or something.
It works great. I think the interface is nicer than the stock touchscreen radio. I like that there's a knob that allows you to cycle through the choices and make selections.
I was really surprised how easy everything was to set up once I got the old one out and the 315 in.
I do think the screen is really small... noticably smaller than the radio and your 510. I read someone (maybe you) say the 3D view is almost unusable.. I'd agree with that statement.
But the price couldn't be beat!
I owe you a beer or three!
Also... I really like this integration into the MFA cluster. It even shows ETA! That's like challenging me to beat that time!
